It really depends on the motor home. Anyone that has a large enough wrecker to tow a class A should know enough to prepare it to tow.

They will probably drop the drive shaft (diesel pusher), furnish air to release the brakes, raise the front end in the correct spot to prevent breaking the windshield or damaging the frame and body panels. That is just to get started. Then they need remote lighting on the back of the motor home.

Hope this helps.

Had my 30q towed last year. BIG truck came. Removed drive shaft. lifted front end and hauled away. Had to adjust height a couple of time as the tail dragged a few times, no damage just a scrape or two on the receiver hitch.

There is an article in the June 2011 FMCA magazine on towing. "Beating the breakdown blues" by John Hawkins.

You can get the article if you are an FMCA member. Here is a link but you have to sign in before seeing the article Beating The Breakdown Blues

John made a great presentation at the Indianapolis FMCA convention last year.
